On December 7, 2011, the Marshall Islands Postal Service Authority issued ten new stamps commemorating America's involvement in World War II. Issued on the 70th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor which plunged America into the war, this special issue is the first in a five-year series. The 2011 World War II 70th Anniversary: 1941 Issue commemorates ten key events and important aspects of the year in which the United States officially entered World War II: the Burma Road, the Allies' vital supply route into China; America's first peacetime draft; Roosevelt's "Great Arsenal" speech; the Lend-Lease Act, which provided billions of dollars' worth of U.S. materials to Allied forces; the Atlantic Charter, calling for the destruction of Nazi tyranny; the sinking of the destroyer U.S.S. Reuben James by a German U-boat; the formation of America's civil defense program to prepare the U.S. population for possible attack; the mass production of Liberty ships to carry supplies across the ocean to the battlefields; the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor; and America's subsequent declaration of war on Japan.
